I thought this is a story which needs to be told as inspite of being historical, this character and story holds value in today's time of patriotism. When we started shooting for the film, it was nice to see Ashutosh used to be very calm and would explain exactly what he wants. He is an actor himself, which is good, so he would assure us that we will finish the work in no time and even if we won't there is no issues. So we would not be worried about anything else. We could concentrate on our acting and it helped us. So there would no stress on the sets.”
